Hey Dimmdrive Users!

I'm about to release a BETA build of the upcoming Dimmdrive release. ETA is 3 days.

The new BETA build is completed! Please uninstall Dimmdrive, reboot, then download the latest build here: Download Dimmdrive 2.0 BETA HERE

Please post your feedback in this existing thread!

Please keep all responses specific to the BETA build. All non-BETA posts will be moved so we can keep things on topic. Thanks :)

  • Your O/S Version
  • Amount of RAM you have
  • Estimated # of Steam Games/Apps Installed

Tim, I am very interested in Beta.


 


OS - Win 7 x 64


Ram - 8gb on current laptop - 16gb on my gaming rig - currently out of commission but fixed within 2 weeks


# steam installed current laptop - 25/  Gaming rig - 150


Other Programs Used - Adobe After Effects with Element 3d for rendering


Comments - I will be evaluating the difference with this older laptop which 


in my opinion is more critical than the speed increase for a power rig.


I will resume alot of streaming when my gaming rig is back up.

I'd be interested in using the beta! Especially with the amount of games I have installed; I need that new GUI.

OS: Win 7 x64

RAM: 16GB

Steam Games Installed: Around 215

I pretty much only game and stream on this PC. I have a few Steam programs installed but I rarely use them. Will be upgrading to 32GB RAM before years end probably.

Yes, multiple things, but mostly for testing. I use browsers and video editors as well

I try to test what will recieve the most benefit out of being ON the Dimmdrive before keeping it on there. I mostly just keep browsers on there for the long haul

  • According to Steam, 277 installed. 549 owned.
  • I do! For Firefox and Visual Studio. And... when my games list won't load.

Hi,

Been enjoying my dimmdrive immensely and I'm interested in early access to the new beta version.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

32 GB Ram.

Have about 40 Steam Games - but I regularly play only a few of them.

Using other programs to load my development environment, SQL Server, Web Browser as well as non steam games on occasion.

Use it for anything with lots of I/O activity from games to work (development).
